Ever feel obligated to read certain books? I used to all the time, whether it be a popular seller, and advanced book, or even a continuation to a series I only kind of liked. Somewhere around March of this year I decided that I’d had enough of reading books that I wasn’t immediately excited about – especially considering my perpetual 20+ list of books that I’m just dying to read. As a result, I have had more fun reading in the last several months than I’ve had since I was a kid. Here’s my new motto and I’m sticking to it: Life’s too short to read books that don’t excite you!
So here’s a look at what I’ve been up to this month:
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – 5/5 stars
False Sight by Dan Krokos – 2.5/5 stars
Perdition by Ann Aguirre – 4/5 stars
Alienated by Melissa Landers – 5/5 stars!
Champion by Marie Lu – 4/5 stars
Even though they weren’t all five-star books, I was still super eager to read each one. My favorite this month was probably The Naturals followed very closely by Alienated!
Waiting on Wednesday features:
Considering how much I love Richelle Mead, it’s no surprise that the book I most looking forward to reading is Silver Shadows.
What amazing books did you read this month? :-)
I want to start out by thinking Blog of Erised for hosting such a fun challenge.
Last month, I figured out that my challenge count was a bit inaccurate. I was only counting the dystopians I’d read and reviewed, leaving out the ones I hadn’t done a post for yet. According to the rules, all read books count so this month we will see a rather larger jump in my overall score. :-)
This month, I finish the following dystopians:
A total of 6 – add that to the 19 books accumulated as of last month and we end up with:
The Official Tally:
Level 4: Leader!
Yay – challenge met!
